William C. Wilson, MD, former vice chairman and chief of Anesthesiology Critical Care Medicine at University of California, San Diego, has been named hospital director of Critical Care Services, a division of the Department of Anesthesiology & Perioperative Care at UC Irvine Health’s Medical Center. Currently, Dr. Wilson oversees the adult intensive care units (ICUs) at UC Irvine Douglas Hospital, including Medical Intensive Care, Coronary Care, Surgical Intensive Care, Neuroscience Intensive Care and Burn unit.

Dr. Wilson brings with him a diverse background that includes formal training in surgery, anesthesiology, adult and pediatric cardiothoracic anesthesia, and critical care medicine.

As an innovative thinker and champion of multidisciplinary care, Dr. Wilson is internationally recognized as a leader in critical care, both as an author and clinician-scientist teacher. In addition to authoring four major textbooks, Dr. Wilson has contributed to hundreds of chapters, and has reviewed articles and scientific papers specific to the medical field.

The ACCM is committed to achieving excellence in academic medicine, providing outstanding medical care, recruiting the brightest and most talented residents, and offering research opportunities in both basic science and clinical realms. With the addition of Dr. Wilson to our world-class faculty, we can continue to realize these goals.

The expertise and leadership of Dr. Wilson will be a valuable asset to our team, and with Dr. Wilson in his new role as hospital director of Critical Care Services and senior faculty at UC Irvine’s Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Care, we can continue to provide world-class care to the people of Orange County and beyond.
